Facebook Connect used to be the way Facebook linked its users to the World Wide Web and allowed them to share information. Now, the site has decided to replace Facebook Connect with a new "Facebook Platform" that features a series of novel social plugins, which aim to "dramatically expand [Facebook's] presence across the Web." Mashable writes Facebook's "Open Graph" is "essentially a replacement for Facebook Connect that makes it easier to share information. However, unlike Facebook Connect, Open Graph participants will be able to store user data for more than 24 hours."
